This is a normal: finding as the blood in your head is pulled down by gravity. Your nose is a vascular structure so it is not surprising that you feel it there. I suspect your face gets red too. Try to inhale slowly when you reach down rather than hold your breath or exhale. This might help to move blood into your thoracic cavity rather than your face.
